The interviews the Grey’s Anatomy cast gave on the set of the show in January are being released this week ahead of the record-breaking episode this Thursday. There is more still to come, but here are the first few.

In these following two videos posted by E! News, the cast answers rapid fire questions about each other. It’s actually pretty funny and gives some good insight into the cast. 😂

Good Morning America has been airing segments about Grey’s this week. The first video aired on Tuesday and the cast talks about the romance on the show. The second video aired on Wednesday and the cast share what is their favorite episode.


ABC released promotional photos for Grey’s Anatomy episode 15.17 titled “And Dream of Sheep” airing March 17th this week. There is one photo of Justin and it can be seen in high quality at the album linked below.

The Hollywood Reporter posted an article about Grey’s making history this week when it airs the 332nd episode and surpasses ER as the longest-running primetime medical drama.
The article has quotes from the entire cast and the showrunner (Krista Vernoff), but I’m only posting Justin’s. Read it in full at the link.

Other castmembers point to medical storylines that have helped viewers diagnose loved ones. Wilson is especially proud of the cyclic vomiting syndrome episode, while Chambers singles out exploring mental illness with Alex’s mother in a storyline first planted in the show’s early days. But all involved can point to several subjects the series has explored that have helped open minds and let viewers see versions of themselves on TV.
Everyone on the Grey’s call sheet will give credit for the show’s creative and ratings resurgence to Vernoff, who as Chambers says, “hit a refresh button and reinvigorated the show.”
As the episode doubles as a celebration of sorts of the record-breaking milestone, the stars all share the same refrain when asked about the significance of doing a whopping 332 hours of television. All involved recall their initial shock that the series few thought would work has become the powerhouse franchise it is today.

“My goal was to do the pilot, take the check and pay some bills!” Wilson recalls with a laugh. Adds Chambers: “When we were in season two, I’d say to everybody, ‘Do you think we’ve got two more years? I just wanted to get my kids to college.’ And now some of them are done with it!”
Of the many notable cast departures, Vernoff, Pompeo and the cast all have quick answers at the ready when asked about which former Grey’s co-stars they’d like to bring back to Prospect Studios:

Chambers (Alex): “Richard Edward Herrmann. He played my intern for a while and was such a joy to work with. He passed on but I felt very lucky to work with him.”

To celebrate reaching a new milestone, ABC put together the following ‘By the Numbers’ video for Grey’s which enumerates the amount of surgeries, weddings, hookups, seriouslys, among other things.


The Hollywood Reporter recently posted an article where industry insiders were asked what to get for casts, crews, studio executives, directors and agents ahead of the holidays. Justin was one of the people asked and his answer is below.

32 Hollywood Actors, Producers, Execs Recommend Holiday Gifts for Colleagues

Actor Justin Chambers (Grey’s Anatomy): “I got this clock, this little travel clock with my initials on the cover of it. You can travel with it. It’s not a digital, but it’s the hand. I got it from my agent, Steven Hirsch.”

Grey’s Anatomy co-executive producer and writer, Jason Ganzel, posted this BTS pic from the midseason finale (episode 15.08 titled “Blowin’ in the Wind”) in which Justin and Camilla Luddington were rehearsing a scene. Also in the pic is Jason, Kevin McKidd (director), Giacomo Gianniotti (he was shadowing Kevin) and Lindsay Cohen (script supervisor).


Last Thursday night (Nov. 1), Justin attended the 18th Annual Debbie Allen Dance Academy Fall Soiree Fundraising Celebration held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.

I added a few photos of him on the red carpet to the archive, and the album link is below.

Justin also gave a few interviews at the event. He spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about why he finds Debbie Allen, who has been an executive producer and director on Grey’s Anatomy for several seasons, awe-inspiring.

“I call her a beast, a beautiful beast. I’m around her a lot on set, we all are. And just to see her juggle so many things and do it with grace and compassion and passion. She’s a very passionate woman and I’m in awe of it. I’m really happy to be here and congratulate her on all of her successes. We’re grateful to have her as a part of our show.”

When it comes to Grey’s, he gave his thoughts about the eventual end of the show and his future on it to Us Weekly.

“It’s still going strong and as long as they keep writing the way that they do and people invest in these characters, the show could just keep going. It’s kind of crazy,” he told Us and other reporters on Thursday. “I deal with today and this season and I’m grateful and having fun.”


Voting for the People’s Choice Awards ends this Friday (Oct. 19), so keep voting for Justin in the The Male TV Star of the 2018 category at the PCA site HERE.

Hollywood Life interviewed Justin at The Rape Foundation’s annual brunch (Oct. 7) and asked him about his future on Grey’s Anatomy, and also what’s coming up for Alex.

While at the event, which honored celebrity guest Jennifer Garner, Justin Chambers talked about his future on the series, saying, “I honestly don’t know [how much longer I’ll do the show]. I play it year by year now. We’ll see — this year is all I am thinking about. We are almost halfway through [filming Season 15].”

If you’ve been watching the current season, then you should know that Justin’s character, Alex Karev, was recently named the new chief of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital — a position he’ll seemingly hold until Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) decides she wants to take her job back. Bailey gave it up so she could focus more on surgery and less on the daily stresses that come from being the chief. Anyway, when Justin spoke about what’s coming up for Alex later this season, he said, “Alex is still chief so….. goofiness happens. We will see where they go with all of this. We are happy that people are still watching!” And watching we are — after 15 seasons, Grey’s Anatomy is still one of ABC’s top-two rated drama series.

The screencaps from the most recent episode titled “Momma Knows Best” have been added to the archive.

By the way, there is no Grey’s this week. The show returns with episode 15.05 titled “Everyday Angel” on Oct. 25th.

Actress Stefania Spampinato, who plays Dr. Carina DeLuca, posted this BTS pic from episode 15.04 with Justin, Jaicy Elliot, Chris Carmack and Giacomo Gianniotti.


This is the Grey’s Anatomy season 15 premiere roundup and it’s going to be a big one…

To start things off, Camilla Luddington posted a BTS pic as an Instagram story of her and Justin during Jo and Alex’s (Jolex) honeymoon. The Grey’s set decorator, Nicole Cramer, posted a pic of the fridge in Jolex’s loft and there’s now a honeymoon pic on it. The pics have been added to the season 15 BTS album.

I have added screencaps from both hours of the season 15 premiere to the archive, and the album links are below.

Grey’s showrunner, Krista Vernoff, gave several interviews where she explained the events of the premiere and what’s ahead for the characters. I’ve only posted below the parts that refer to Justin and Alex Karev’s storyline. The full interviews can be read at the sources linked to below.

The Hollywood Reporter

Speaking of interim chief, how will Alex be a different chief than the ones we’ve seen before? How will Alex being a leader shake things up?

It’s delightfully different. Justin Chambers just lights this story up. In many ways, he was the least likely candidate for the job — which is why we loved it so much when we landed on it in the room after days of discussing the various possibilities. It feels entirely different than the chiefs we’ve seen before — and Justin wears the suit well.

TV Guide

In a surprising twist, Alex is the interim chief of surgery. How does he compare to Bailey in that role?
Vernoff: Alex Karev is an unlikely chief of surgery and that was a joy. It’s a little bit of a fish-out-of-water story initially. Who would have thought that Alex [would score this position]? It’s really joyful to see how he steps into it and rises to [the occasion]. It’s funny, and Justin (Chambers) is just tremendous. Wait ’til you see him in a suit.

So we’re gonna see Alex in a suit really taking this new role seriously?
Vernoff: It’s a temporary thing because Bailey’s gonna take her job back, but Bailey is trying to take care of her health and her stress levels and find the joy that she lost when Ben became a firefighter. It’s a complicated journey she’s taking, but she’ll be chief again at some point. In the meantime, Alex is up against everyone’s judgment and everyone’s doubt and his own self-doubt and it’s really great to see.


DEADLINE: This season the show picks up after the wedding, with Jo and Alex on their honeymoon after finally getting married. But as we’ve seen often in the show, marriage doesn’t necessarily lead to forever, with couples often breaking up at some point. Will Jo and Alex be the exception?

VERNOFF: Well, I can’t speak to the long run because who knows how long the show will go on. I feel like Jo and Alex had a really long journey to this moment where they’re newlyweds and they’re happily married and are more interested in leaning into you and me against the world than you and me against each other. I think they’ve earned it.

This next quote is from the Remote Controlled podcast at Variety. I transcribed the part where Krista talks about Alex/Justin that starts at about the 19:52 mark.

You saw in the premiere that Alex is the Interim Chief of Surgery, which I think nobody expected. No one saw that coming. And when we came to that in the writers’ room, we spent weeks talking about ‘Who’s it gonna be? Who’s it gonna be? Who’s it gonna be?’, and when we landed on Alex, we were like, ‘Oh my God, of course it’s Alex!’ And it just was untold. Like, that story was like, ‘Who is he is gonna be as chief?’ was so delightful to us. The first day that Roemehl, our new costume designer, put him in his chief duds, like in his suit, Justin was like, “I feel reborn.” It’s really an exciting, fun thing to watch.

I’ll also leave this mention of Justin here. It’s part of an interview with the Grey’s directors who were working last week (Sept. 25), which included Nicole Rubio who was directing episode 15.06.


While the multi-hyphenate was fairly secretive about her episode, Rubio could confirm she had spent her morning shooting with Justin Chambers and Camilla Luddington, who play newlyweds Alex Karev and Jo Wilson(-Karev?). “They are hysterical,” Rubio said with a laugh. “They were so cute together. They are happy to be here, happy to be married.”

This week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy is titled “Gut Feeling.” I had previously added some promotional photos to the archive, and here are now the promos and synopsis.

“Gut Feeling” – Meredith works on a patient who happens to specialize in matchmaking, and a seemingly drunk patient pushes Richard’s buttons and gives him a medical mystery to solve.
